A monthly coding meetup in Manchester, where developers hone their skills by performing Katas

  • 14 Jan 2015 - Codejo At Mmu

    In 2014 there was a bit of a hiatus with Manchester Codejo as we decided what to do next. We still wanted to provide a place for developers to hone their own skills, but we also wanted to start building links with the universities in the local area.

    There are three major universities inside the M60, and many others within an hours drive of Manchester, but the tech community is not great at engaging with the student community. So, in December we ran the first Manchester Codejo at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU).

    We decided to start by looking at Ruby again with the Ruby Koans, which was done in pairs of one software professional with one student. We will be continuing this again on the second codejo at MMU which is going to be held next Thursday (Thurs 22nd Jan), if you would like to be involved then please drop us a tweet @manc_codejo.

    For this months codejo we’ll be looking at the Checkout Kata in Javascript (nodejs), hopefully learning from the previous months CRC card sessions.

    Nodejs download instructions can be found here.

    For this months codejo we’ll be running another Class Responsibility Collaboration (CRC) card session with the Checkout Kata.

    This is a way to look at candidate objects and their interactions without having the expense of making decisions in code.
